Meet our team of Skill Toy Experts!
Ladies and gentleman, we present to you the Hipster King himself! Tyler is the real thing, what all hipsters aspire to be. He has been throwing for about 3 years in the solitude of Iowa. When he's not busy fishing, disc golfing, or enjoying a cold beer, you can rest assured you will find him with a yoyo in his hand. Possibly our hairiest team member, be sure to tell him “Hi!” if you see him at any contests!
Jordan is a yoyo enthusiast hailing from Ontario, Canada. When he’s not practicing his speed combos or hop tricks, he can be found sitting in a corner somewhere listening to indie music with an ice-cold Canada Dry in hand. Jordan has been throwing for 3-4 years now and has a passion for teaching those who show interest. His other favourite activities include: running, gaming, watching movies, gorging himself at Japanese restaurants, and petting every cat he sees.

Justin is the mastermind behind the design work for Rain City. Jeremy comes up with the stupid concepts that should be impossible and Justin says "Well if we bend the laws of physics and invent transparent aluminum I think we can do it."
Having grown up overseas (Europe, Asia, Africa, eastern Europe) moving every 2-3 years, Justin went to high school in Switzerland. With a mechanical engineering degree and a masters in materials, Justin has worked on a U.S. Air Force flight test program. He currently works on advanced development programs - super secret squirrel stuff.
Justin has been playing with yoyos since the mid 90’s. He’s pretty sure he still sucks at it.
Luna has been experimenting with alternative styles of yoyoing for as long as she can remember. In fact, one of the first tricks she ever shared was a 1.5A tech combo. She finds the creative process of new styles, combined with the challenge of inventing and mastering new techniques, is the true reward of yoyo play, and she often also tries to develop this in her more standard yoyo play.
Aside from yoyoing, Luna has her mind set on learning every skill toy she can get her hands on, which so far includes begleri, balisong, cardistry, penspinning, juggling, fingerboarding, and even her own invented "phone flipping".
Luna is a long time speedcuber and mathematician, and is one of under 10 people in the world to have solved the 6 dimensional analogue of the Rubik's cube.
